Linux Mainactor looks promising

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Steve Friedman, Dec 13, 2003.

  1. Tried Mainactor on suse 9.

    Interface looks clean and comparable to well known nle's.


    effects/transitions have small icons that mimic what they do (as in
    MSP)



    mainactor looks more affordable then discreets upcoming linux nle
    release

    OK, I'll bite - what procduct is Discreet working on for Linux? I
    couldn't find anything on their site.

    I have Main Adctor that came with SuSE 9 Pro which is my primary OS...

    So I tried it just now - (usually I use Kino). There's no way to capture
    or export video, and no way to even import clips that I already have on
    the hard drive. Yes I know you can right click and select "add media
    clips" but you can't actually navigate the file browser (my clips are in
    "/windows/g/media/" and double-clickong on the top lever "windows" folder
    does nothing.

    The Help file is for Windows only.

    Promising? It's useless.

    Nice try, but next time you post something for Linux, know what
    you're talking about or just save the bandwidth.

  4. Guess I am the only one with some function in Mainactor just as I may
    be the only person with knowledge of smoke for linux (see below)

    All I did was search "linux" at discreet.com, not bad for someone
    " who doesn't know what he is talking about"

    It is well known the current Mainactor linux beta does not have
    capture enabled. All I did was read the release notes to learn this.

    Also the Main actor I installed is from the web and not the one that
    shipped with suse..

    Sorry for wasting your bandwidth.
